Running away from Tigray, Dunia’s voice

06 October 2022|Paula Casado Aguirregabiria

Dunia is an Eritrean refugee who was in Tigray’s refugee camp the moment the armed conflict started.

Dunia, as many other refugees in northern Ethiopia, thought her nightmare was over once she had escaped Eritrea.

What she did not know, is that a violent war was about to start in northern Ethiopia, between the Tigrinya militias and the Government of the country. A war that would significantly affect the lives not only of Ethiopians, but of the thousands refugees  living in Tigray and its surroundings.

I could only think of my children...

This time, instead of us explaining you her story, we will let her put word to what she experiences in Tigray, her fears and also her hopes.
